Welcome to the B&MK Waterway Trust

The B&MK Waterway Trust was established in 1995 to promote the development of a  broad waterway which will link the Grand Union Canal in Milton Keynes to the river Great Ouse in Bedford through a series of waterway parks. It will include pathways and green space designed to meet the needs of walkers, cyclists, fishermen, and those who simply like to stand and stare.
